Donovan Steele, returned to Quebec to get married, finds his fiancée in the arms of another. Having lost all faith in god and women, he begins to wander the desert and soon becomes known as "the man who denies god". While in a small town, he accidentally sees Nerée Caron again, a woman he had already met on the train. Nerée, unjustly accused of killing her brother, goes into hiding because she is wanted by the law. Donovan, who has become her friend, when her uncle comes to the village to find her, manages to mislead his research. But the man is not as cunning when he has to do with Jean Cluny, the uncle's secretary, who tracks down Nerée, and tries to force her to the sanctuary of Sant'Anna de Beaupré, where, on the Holy Stairs, after having prayed, Nerée he learns that the real culprit is his uncle who has confessed to the murder of his brother. Freed of all charges, Nerée marries Donovan and their wedding is celebrated in the chapel.
